Plot summary

Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, as hungry as always, venture into the swamp following a scent. There they meet swamp resident Lila, an intelligent girl who loves cooking, and asks them to recover ingredients to finish her stew. Shaggy and Scooby set off with the gang to solve two mysteries while secretly collecting the ingredients.


Just like First Frights, the player controls the five members of the Mystery Inc, and the gameplay and interface are highly reminiscent of TT Games' Lego game series. The games has light puzzle elements, platforming, and combat. The primary goal of the game is to solve mysteries and find ingredients to Lila's stew. Each character of the gang has different skills and functions. The game contains many collectibles, including: ingredients for a hoagie, the letters of 'Scooby', Scooby-Doo's collar medallion, ghost photographs, and costumes. Collectibles, options, cheat codes, rewards and more can be accessed in the Swamp's Clubhouse. By defeating enemies, small masks are collected; upon reaching a specified number of masks, the information about the equivalent enemy are shown in the Clubhouse. The player can get trophies for doing certain tasks. The player can also play with a friend in multiplayer co-operation.

In addition to Lila's swamp, players assist characters in two other locations, El Muncho, a Southwestern ghost town, and Howling Peaks, a snowy alpine village.[3] In El Muncho, the citizens are frightened by the "El Scaryachi," and the Scooby gang must help Costington (a character from First Frights), twins Emilio and Esteban, and a secret spy Romero. In Howling Peaks, the locals are frightened by a Yeti, and the gang must help Daphne's cousin Anna (who also appeared in First Frights), a snowboarder Moose, Dustin Planks, Barry "Baz" Buckley, and Sergio. Throughout the game, the player will occasionally encounter a talking frog named Philippe Extraordinare.
